I can’t believe that it’s actually Valentine’s Day again! And this year, I have nothing new to say about it.

I was just looking at some of this e-zine’s previous Valentine’s Day columns, and the one from two years ago, when I had just lost my mother, really resonated with me. It was mainly about how wonderful Mr. X is, and I was lauding him especially for how much he had helped me out during the extra-hard two years we had just endured.

In addition to my painful hands and subsequent surgeries on them, I’m dealing with a particularly stressful situation in regards to my Brooklyn abode. Then when I just read about how great Mr. X was to me back then, I realized that he’s been even better to me through all of the recent struggles than ever before. You have no idea what that guy went through with my hand situations!

I know I’m not going to do better with giving him props than I did in 2012, so here is the link to that one, in case you have time to read it today:

And let’s face it, isn’t Valentine’s Day about celebrating your loved ones? So, please bear with me for thanking Mr. X once again.

If reading about someone else’s boyfriend being so fabulous is not what you wanted to do on this special day, (or ever!,) you might want to re-read this other one, from the year before, where I give sage advice about how this holiday is just one day, and there’s nothing to feel sad about if you’re alone: Just skip past the first two paragraphs.

So, we know I love Mr. X, and there are a few friends I really love, as well, (even though most of them live in places other than Los Angeles, or even the United States!,) but just as importantly, I really do love all of you! When singers just cavalierly state that they love their fans, I totally get it; anyone who supports those of us in the public arena are worthy of our love and gratitude.

So to all my readers today, I wish you a Super Happy Valentine’s Day!
